A trainer on Tuesday is looking to have a winner at Newcastle over the jumps, sending just one runner to the northern based track on the day, which sees the handler make a 596 mile round trip.

When we see trainers coming such a long way to just run the one horse we like to highlight it, as we believe they would not be coming all that way if it did not have a real chance.

Trainer Lucinda Russell loves bringing his horses this far currently running at a strike rate of 29% during his career having had 72 winners from 246 runners.

Mac Tottie is a very useful chaser that runs off only 4lb higher than his win over the national fences on the Grand Sefton Handicap Chase at Aintree.

He does give a lot of weight away but looks to have a big chance to get back to winning ways if at his best.
